Food Connect does it again (and again)!

Following on from our success in the Queensland Sustainable Industries Awards, we are proud to announce that Food Connect has been chosen as a finalist for the Banksia Environmental Awards in the “Agriculture & Food” category, and we're up against KRAFT!! We are also especially chuffed to be selected for the Banksia “People’s Choice” Awards.

The Banksia Awards are recognised as Australia’s pre-eminent environmental awards, rewarding environmental excellence and promoting best practice principles over the last 21 years. The Banksia Environmental Foundation, through their award programs, aims to raise the profile of the current environmental issues facing Australia and recognise those whose initiatives are an encouragement and an example for others to follow.

  1. Congratulations yet again, great to see the link between human behaviour (what we eat) and the environment being recognised more and more. Yeah for positive social change! Wonderful to see Food Connect getting the recognition it richly deserves.


  2. Thanks Sonya! We're so shocked with the attention, and so used to fighting the fight, that we don't quite know how to celebrate!!! It will take a while to sink in, I think...
